Mr. Taylor said in part: "Events are moving fast and no man, not even the president, can stop them. No real statesman ever tried to avoid a crisis by turning his back upon it or by self-deception. If the president msikes the fatal mistake of attempting longer to muzzle congress by putting his imprimatur upon false hopes and empty illusions, before, the ink is dry upon his message, events will discredit all his predictions. Let congress but speak the final and emphatic word—recognition—and in ninety days the long and bloody tragedy will be over, the whole Christian world will rejoice and sa3' amen. Spain will be rescued from an impossible situation and there will be no war with the United States, and Cuba will be free." ASKS S2OO.OOO OF HAWAII.
